An astute businessman, Max decided not to compete head to head with other emerging consumer brands but instead focused on the commercial market. In 1952, he designed and engineered a six-slice toaster with a built-in timer (the first of its kind). Over the next 20 years, the company grew slowly, gradually improving and extending its range of commercial toasters and adding other related products.
Everything started to change in the ‘70s when Max’s son Leslie joined the business. A government-sponsored design grant gave Dualit the opportunity to employ a Royal College of Art design graduate. Export incentives prompted Leslie and Max to exhibit at foreign trade shows. And consumer demand for professional kitchen appliances led retailers to stock Dualit products.
When the Dualit toaster became the must-have kitchen appliance of the ‘80s, the company was swamped by an insatiable demand. It was forced to extend the factory twice over and find ways of increasing its manufacturing capacity.
